Walker the Palomino
9x12 Oil on Canvas
Cheri Wollenberg
Last summer I was teaching a painting class in my home and one of my students had made arrangements for us to visit a relative's horse farm.  They have some show horses, long horn cattle and ponies.  We took all kinds of photos for references to paint from and this one was of a very young Palomino horse.  He looked so quiet and docile until we approached him a little closer and his ears perked up and he jumped in the air and snorted.  He begin to kick around and run as if he was showing off for us.  What fun!  Horses are such beauties.  My husband used to rope in rodeos and we always had four or five horses around.  I miss them.  This one made a wonderful model.  To purchase this painting click Walker.
